You can take the survey here

Please only take the survey if you are an in-house lawyer from a pharmaceutical, biotech or life sciences company.


We are looking to gain and share insight on how in-house IP counsel view the SPC framework in Europe; including Article 3a, the SPC Manufacturing Waiver and unitary SPCs. 

This is the second in our series of in-house surveys in 2019. You can read the special report on the findings of that survey, on the changing dynamic between artificial intelligence and IP, here.

Don’t miss the chance to have your say.

The survey should take no longer than five minutes to complete, and all responses will only be published in an aggregated and anonymised form. The more responses we get, the more illuminating the final report will be.

If you would like to discuss your thoughts in more detail, please contact Patrick Wingrove at patrick.wingrove@managingip.com
